    Re: NL 90 not cooling on 12 volt

    Had to re-gas my Snowmaster in the first year, and it didn't fit into either my Echo or Cheetah, so there's that.

    Re: NL 90 not cooling on 12 volt

    I don't think it would run at all if the fuse was blown. If the extractor fan was shot then the compressor runs for a short while then cuts off, starts again when it cools, then cuts. While it's...

    Re: NL 90 not cooling on 12 volt

    Exactly my problem. The fan extracts hot air around the compressor motor.

    I saw movers fitted on a Chobe and saw they were a serious impediment to exit angle. Looked Like they halved the clearance behind the wheels. That and the added weight convinced me to rather go to...

    Re: Rooftop Trailer Tent Setup Times

    Had the same tent on our Echo 4. We managed to set up in about 45 minutes, but then the added awning was always left attached if we were going camping and knew we would need it, avoiding the clumsy...

  8. Re: How long does a dual battery system really last?

    That's also how I understood it - DC-DC chargers are to compensate for longer distances between alternator and battery and allow smaller diameter cabling to be used. If you could put the same...

    [QUOTbleNambots;4638347]Thank's for all your advices. On one hand I feel I was probably worrying a bit too much, but on the other I think also that I'll consider a 100w solar panel for good.

  10. Re: Who can cut a boot floorboard for tuner in Johannesburg/Pretoria

    My impression is that it is just the base being from ply, but perhaps not. (Edit - not .. seeing post #16)

  11. Re: Who can cut a boot floorboard for tuner in Johannesburg/Pretoria

  12. Re: Who can cut a boot floorboard for tuner in Johannesburg/Pretoria

    Why does it have to be so precise. I've built a rack setup, it's way smaller than the aperture of the door that you need to get the rack system through, so a few centimeters here and there won't make...

  15. Re: How long does a dual battery system really last?

    My understanding is that the alternator charges the secondary battery. There is a solonoid that senses when the crank battery is fully charged (it's a high cycle so charges quickly), then opens a...

    No way of telling, you might get a sympathetic official but I would never take the risk of being turned back. Rather plan to get it within the 72 hours by adjusting your trip.

    The people that got back into South Africa on a rapid test alone we're just lucky. Very good chance you'll just be turned back and then lose a full day while you wait for the PCR test.

    I need to check whether we can have the test in Maun and fetch the results in Ghanzi the next day, even Lobatse the next. Spending a night in Maun on the way home wasn't in the plan.
